This is salted caramel in the traditional French style, with a candy-caramel ganache elevated by a pinch of salt and a wonderful, tender-melting almond praline layer. It’s enhanced with a bit of dark chocolate and some salt crystals, coated in a wafer-thin layer of milk chocolate, and all covered in a fine-flavour 70% dark chocolate.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Josef Zotter is one of the long-established heroes of the craft chocolate movement. He has been producing chocolate since 1992, became famous for his wacky flavour combinations (scarlet runner bean and coriander pastry, anyone?), and was one of the earliest to produce 100% Organic and Fairtrade products. He has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of his growers around the world, engaging in numerous initiatives in Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia. He also runs an outstanding chocolate factory visitor experience – The Zotter Experience – that is a must-see for any chocolate-loving visitors to Austria.
ABOUT THE BAR
Zotter’s handscooped range is where it all began. The chocolate that surrounds these filled bars has been specifically chosen to complement the unique flavour combinations inside, giving a perfect tasting experience of great texture and fine flavour.
